The Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show™, held annually on the second Saturday of July, is the largest outdoor quilt show in the world. Downtown Sisters is wrapped in quilts for this special day, creating a spectacular, colorful spectacle that truly has to be seen to be believed. But the quilt show is more than one spectacular day: It's becoming a year-round celebration of the fiber arts.
Quilting enthusiasts from all around the world will come to town for the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show (SOQS) on the second Saturday in July, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. throughout the town of Sisters. More than 1,300 quilts will adorn every building, fence and railing available with styles ranging from hand-quilted heirlooms to contemporary art quilts.
The quilting extravaganza kicks off with the Around the Block Fiber Arts Stroll and Quilt Walk.
The annual Quilt Walk showcases over 100 quilts inside SOQS sponsoring businesses during the entire month of July.
SOQS relies heavily on volunteer support.
A complete listing of volunteer jobs and online sign-up is available at www.sistersoutdoorquiltshow.org/volunteers.htm. Quilting knowledge or experience is not a requirement.
